Brooks II, Ph.D., Trine University president, sign an agreement establishing a 3+3 pathway to a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree for Trine students. Trine students in several majors will have the option to finish their coursework at Trine after three years, with their first-year courses in The University of Toledo College of Law completing their bachelor’s degree at Trine. The agreement, the second such partnership at Trine, allows Trine students to complete a J.D. in six years of combined undergraduate and graduate work, rather than the traditional seven.
